Rolling Blackouts in Statesboro

Statesboro is experiencing rolling blackouts today after a critical equipment failure which resulted in a fire at the Statesboro primary substation located at 301N & the bypass.  The frequent outages are the result of work being done to repair equipment and restore power to critical locations, such as hospitals & schools.  The local schools will continue to operate throughout the outages, as they are equipped with backup systems & generators.  They are also equipped with 911 radio systems to reach local emergency personnel should the need arise.
